Having been fiercely focused on her career, Olivia and her husband Felix have moved to the suburbs in anticipation of their future family. But despite approaching her cycle and their sex life with military precision, there’s still no sign of what felt like the sure next step, whilst friends’ broods seem to be growing by the week. Meanwhile, vying for a promotion at work under the (very attentive) watch of a new boss sends Olivia down a dangerous road of risking it all. Does a happy ever after, she starts to question, even have to include a baby?

Description

Hilarious, heartbreaking, truthful and bold’ Dolly Alderton

Meet Olivia Galvin.

She knows she’s lucky. There’s the handsome husband. The sounds-pretty-good-on-paper job. A house they can just about afford. Loving, intrusive and completely bonkers extended family. Plus, she’s having more sex than she’s ever had in her life.

But the one thing she really wants seems to be the one thing she just can’t seem to have…

Capturing the stress, sex and sometime hilarity of trying for a baby, Olivia’s all-too-familiar battles with modern life make her question whether having it all is ever really worth it.
